Elias, in his first Medways, came first in his age group in the Fly heats, but was unfortunately DQ’d in the final. Haidn was a reserve finalist.
For the girls, Sharay bagged herself a 3rd place in the 50m Backstroke. In the 100m Backstroke for their 16 and over age group Caitlin smashed a gold and won the Open Medway ASA Cup presented by our MASA President and ex Head Coach Mark Durrant!
